3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured this beer from a regular bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a light brown-dark copper color with an average, foamy tan head that had average retention and cling, but good lacing. It had a malty nut and caramel aroma with some earthy tones, a bit of sugar, and light toffee. The taste was a malty caramel and nut blend along with a slight grainy earth effect. The body was fairly thin and airy, and was somewhat dry, with low to average carbonation.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Extremely sweet toffee aroma with caramel and nutty notes. Pours opaque brown with a thin light brown head with OK retention and good lacing. Starts with caramel malt sweetness with a little bit of nuttiness as well. Finishes smooth with a huge toffee malt sticky sweetness that clings to the palate. Pretty nice brown but almost too sweet.
